POOR Substitute for the real thing.
Tried this instead of Horlicks,BIG mistake,weak ,tasteless,have ended up binning it,not even worth one star.

Just noticed the huge amount of sugar in this, which is even more than regular brands so won’t stick with this. I can see why other reviews say it’s too sweet.
Better to buy premium brand version
Not as good as the premium brand, it’s far too sweet , pale colour and you have to add more powder otherwise it’s tasteless.
This is weak and insipid and need to add a lot more powder to get any real flavour - will stick to the branded (Hor**ks) in future.
Well Worth A Try....!!!!!
Looking at the reviews I was very sceptical to try this tesco own product. I am so pleased I did as it is very nice and will definitely be a regular to my shopping list. Thanks Tesco for saving me so much money on Brand costs.

Love my nightly malted drink and this product is just perfect against its competitor. The size of the jar lasts a long time and is a good price.
OK(ish) but wouldn't buy it again.
Most will want to know how it compares with the leading brand. Not well unfortunately, in my opinion, but then it doesn't claim to have the same ingredients, this being malted barley based and not malted barley/wheat mixture based. Also the leading brand is fortified with various vitamins whereas this doesn't claim to be. In terms of taste, it comes down to what you are used to really and this is noticeably different. Having said that, if you'd never tasted the leading brand and started with this, you may well be quite happy with it, as I say it's what you are used to. Even if you have been using the leading brand you may be satisfied with this one - give it a try like I did and draw your own conclusions, we are all different in our tastes.
Give weight in spoons please
Nice enough drink, but why dont you give number of spoonful per cup? 23g to be added to 200ml of hot milk. I don't want to bring out scales to weigh for a drink. Please Tesco, give measurements in spoons and cups.
Out of stock now. Not surprised why.
This is not a typical "tesco cheap", much better. I bought it first to try it, as I ran out of O***, then I hooked on it. It is flavourful, malty and much better than any other alternative malt drinks apart from the original O*** but very close to it. I cannot drink any other brands except these two. At the time I am writing this, out of stock. Not surprised. It is that good.
Good for the price & less sweet than named brand.
Having seen the mixed reviews, I was a bit doubtful about this, but I thought I'd have a go for the price, and was very pleasantly surprised. It's less sweet than the brand leader (which shall not be named) - but that's a good thing. And, yes, if you use too much it comes up a bit gloopy, but I find a mixture of half-and-half water and milk and not heaping the spoon too much produces a good compromise which makes a pleasantly malty hot drink to amble off to bed with ...
